NO SUN

Lynne is sunbathing topless in her back garden. An unnamed man with a pencil moustache, possibly a neighbour, comes to the fence to tell Lynne that his copy of the Sun newspaper wasn't delivered this morning. Lynne gives her condolences for the man's lack of newspaper. The man says he has come up with a solution to his lack of newspaper and says that Lynne has made up for the lack of Page 3, presumably because she is topless. Lynne isn't happy about this and throws her bottle of tanning oil at the man.

Probability states that there is a 83% chance that this is a weekday, what with the Sun being available on 6 days out of 7. With those odds in place, we have to wonder what this neighbour with the pencil moustache is doing at home. If it's so early that he is yet to leave for work then it must be incredibly hot as Lynne already has her top off. The hottest time of day is usually between 12pm and 4pm and not at 7am. If it's after lunch, has this man been storing up his risque joke since the moment his paper was not delivered?

Is the promise of women's breasts the only reason he buys the Sun? I suppose, with this being the 70s, that without the internet or so-called 'lad's mags' this was the only way a man such as this could get his fix of boobs. He should be looking a bit deeper in his copy of The Sun though. Although it is classed as a tabloid newspaper it still covers a number of reputable stories and, for a man who doesn't work and sports a pencil moustache, is enough to keep abreast of current affairs. I doubt he watches the news either, except for the off chance of Jan Leeming or Sue Lawley wearing a flimsy blouse. Imagine if today he hadn't seen Lynne and Nicholas Witchell was presenting; he would've exploded.

  1. Why is he telling Lynne that his copy of the Sun wasn't delivered? More importantly, why is she saying "sorry"? Is she involved in the newspaper's distribution? Does she have a part time job as a papergirl? Perhaps because it was hot she decided to just dump the contents of her sack (much like George no doubt does every morning) and get out in the garden to make the most of the day's rays.

  2. Lynne does not work, but perhaps she occasionally freelances at the post office. Or she used to work at the corner shop and the man with the pencil moustache is mad and still thinks she works there, even after 5 years of marriage. it would explain why he is at home on a weekday.

  3. 2 things: there seems to be excessive creasage on the man with the pencil moustache's trousers in the last panel, and also Lynne is wearing a smirk, not normally linked to voyeurees.

    I think she likes it.

  4. Perhaps the man has had his copy of the sun delivered but is unaware because he has been sucked inside it to appear in the george and lynne strip and that is why lynne is apologising.

  5. It is most likely that God decided that he shouldn't see his copy of the Sun today lest he see himself inside it and thus the world would implode.

  6. Interesting that Lynne calls him an idiot rather than a pervert or a lecher. Makes her sound rather detached and aloof about the matter.
